    Thanks for all the replys
    My thought was to create a mirror while is working fine, once it had completed i was thinking of removing the hard drive thus breaking the mirror. I was hopeing that i would be left with a working copy which i could restore if needed.

    lol

    sounds like an interesting way of creating a backup :P

    you would still end up having to "ghost" the image back onto server as i dont think windows would be too happy waking up and finding itself running on a USB hard disk as oppose to its lovely SCSI RAID drive that its used too...

    Id like to see what would happen but i imagine you would get a nice blue screen with pretty white writing.

    unless you edited your boot.ini perhaps :\

    Id get some backup software, but youve actually got me saying "I dont really know" because, I .. dont :\

    Id strong suggest you break the mirror before you remove the USB drive :P

    Actually, Win2k3 does with dynamic disks. Granted I wouldn't recommend it but it is possible.

    Do an ASR backup instead, you'll be back up and running in no time.
